This is beginning to drive me up a wall. ...and it is costing me more than the maintenance I paid for.
Today I tried to access the old Pro/E 2001 files and wanted to download the Pro/Fly-Through install files.
Well, that FTP site is no longer serving the files and -appears- to simply not accept the provided password. In fact, this FTP site doesn't even require a password.
The files are simply no longer located there and the download server needs to be updated.
Okay, now it doesn't take a genius to write tech support a little note about this and to get the files I need and have the download site updated...
Care to guess what they decided to do?
THEY FREAKIN' RESET MY PTC ACCOUNT PASSWORD AND CLOSED THE CASE!
PTC: You really need to get a handle on your tech support!
I give up!
Sorry to hear that, but thank you for sharing! That almost sounds as bad as my corporate (outsourced) tech. support!
FYI: In the past, I've gone back and escalated tech. supported issues like this and it has worked. Not fun.
I wish you luck.
I know... and I did.
I got a call back from a different tech support engineer and again... SERIOUSLY!... -AGAIN- the tech didn't review the case fully before calling. So I was kept on the phone when I walked the tech through the entire process and discovery only to have them say they will get back me. Still no file.
That is $50 of my time I lost in one day just because two separate tech support engineers are unwilling to investigate a case fully -before- contacting the customer. PTC should be -very- ashamed of themselves for allowing such poor service.
